Well, I never saw this coming: Adam Sandler’s latest exercise in puerile nastiness appears to be the biggest piece of crap since … well, since Jack and Jill way back in 2011.
Oh wait. I did see it coming. I know we still have half a year to go, but That’s My Boy appears to have an excellent shot at being the worst movie of 2012. I can hardly wait to award myself that Chili’s gift card.
Excerpts from a few of the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes:
“most loutish, annoying character he’s come up with since “Little Nicky.”
“cruel and unusual punishment…”
“Sandler hits a new low.”
“This may be the most loathsome film of the year.”
You get the picture. Thus far, it’s sitting at about 20 percent. That’s from the critics. Viewers are rating it about 70 percent. If that seems wrong, just ask yourself what sort of person might pay good money to see an Adam Sandler film. There’s your explanation. These people don’t set the bar real high.
